Description Brandon Low (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-02-16 02:16:30 UTC
Depends on bug 716 em8300-modules, description of the em8300 package there. 
This is the support libraries which other programs use in conjunction with the
kernel modules.
Comment 1 Brandon Low (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-02-16 02:25:54 UTC
Oh, I think we should add to the xine-lib ebuild a use variable for em8300 so
that people can disable it even if the em8300 is installed.

Comment 3 Brandon Low (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-02-16 16:12:09 UTC
So these are going to be combined?  I was thinking that for the sake of
modularity, and being able to reinstall the kernel modules (for a new kernel
build for instance) without rebuilding the libraries might be a convienance for
many people (me included).
Comment 4 Daniel Robbins (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-02-16 18:48:31 UTC
oops; just thought it got submitted twice.  Fixing.
Comment 5 jochem prins 2002-03-01 18:11:55 UTC
The current(=2-3-'02) source version is now 0.12 for both sources on This version has some changes, see previously
mentioned website for more information about the changes. I just wanted to let
you know this, so more people could enjoy your ebuilds like i did.
Comment 6 Brandon Low (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-03-01 18:29:18 UTC
see comment on bug 716, this should probably be closed pending new version.
Comment 7 Brandon Low (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-03-09 13:35:05 UTC
updated to new version
Comment 8 Brandon Low (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-03-16 13:55:25 UTC
Changed some einfo statements and packaged the thing today, changed URL to
reflect package location
Comment 9 Arcady Genkin (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-04-13 15:00:30 UTC
It doesn't seem like these have been added to the portage tree yet...

Anyhow, I had a look at the ebuild, and all seems weel, with one exception.  You
determine the kernel module installation directory, based on the currently
running kernel, whereas it seems to be the trend to decide that, based on the
version of installed kernel sources (e.g. NVIDIA driver and alsa module).  Have
a look at how nvidia-kernel detects the kernel version.  

BTW, there is supposed to be $KV variable available, but I'm not sure whether
it's safe to use it yet.  Have a look at bug 599 for details.

If you update this little aspect of the ebuild, I'll have no problem committing it.

Thanks and sorry it took me so long to have a look.
Comment 10 Brandon Low (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-04-13 19:08:56 UTC
Ok I just updated this to use the KV variable that is preset (seems to work...)
if that is going to start sucking, let me know... 

I also changed the src URI so that version number bumps should be easier.
Comment 11 Arcady Genkin (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-04-22 21:56:42 UTC
Committed.  Thanks.
